Color formula 3

Mittwoch, 14. März 2007

Have you ever tried to have a drink mixed of red vine with lemon? I guess it wouldn’t taste at all. And so are some fabrics we have in our drawers – they don’t fit together well.
But there is a simple trick: Put something in the middle, to create a connection, so put a yummy golden grilled chicken in the middle of your casserole, add your tasty red vine and decorate with sour lemons.
Something is missing? Could be a special sauce made of white cream spiced with nearly black juniper berries, to get the necessary deepness of taste.
I think now there is a wide scale to eliminate colors for a design.
And to make it smoothly I put some silver shimmering green leafs of basil on the top.

Bon appetit!

Leftovers

Freitag, 2. März 2007

Inspired by the excellent hints of Bonnie Hunter how to use all your stash I tried the “Hidden Pinwheels” and sewed a few blocks of leftovers of a bed quilt I had given to my mother. (I’m not so in love with all the “brownies”, but in her house those colors fit so well).

I separated the scraps in two halves: lights and darks. And so you can find out a pattern, one block has a darker rhombus, the next a lighter one.

It was a fun using the hints for efficient sewing.
